JJ was very considerate and answered all of my questions. His knowledge of the court system was just what I need, he was top of the notch. His repor was great with the court staff. His secretary was very nice and very helpful. I am glad I hired him and would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in an unfortunate situation.

I came home from a office party. Maybe drank a little too much. Jonathan was able to get the blood results tossed out or something. I do not really understand, but because Jonathan did what he did, the Prosecutors could not use my blood results against me. I am very lucky that I chose Jonathan to represent me!!! He really understands the court system and how to get results.

I actually had another lawyer tell me I needed to write this review after he looked my case over and confirmed that Mr. Paull did absolutely nothing for me and I have a right to be mad. And yes, I am writing this anonymously as I am still dealing with the case. But be warned; Mr. Paull talks really BIG but never follows through with any of it! He will tell you he's going to do so many different things for you but in the end never does. He is difficult to get in touch with, and never knows the case until he walks in court which is the only time you'll see him. He told me so many different things that he was going to do that the cops would have to prove, but he NEVER did them! When I would ask about these things he would pretty much brush me off and then bring up other things that would confuse me. Then I was rushed to "settle" after only 5 months, being led to believe that I was getting a "good deal", only to find out later that it was just the standard deal that the court gives. And he never even went to the ALR hearing! What a joke! Be warned: he just takes your money and doesn't do anything for you! If you need a good lawyer, look elsewhere.

This attorney is a great asset to have if you are in DWI trouble. He can make witnesses of the State look like total amateurs due to his vast knowledge of DWI information and the law regarding such cases. A good attorney if you can get on his good side. He also is well known in the court room by other attorneys and the judge; sometimes that can be seen as a negative if a client is not used to seeing a lawyer have a good time at what he does best.

I would highly recommend Mr. Paull. He worked with my son on a DWI case from back in November 2012 and got the cased dismissed. He also worked with us on his fees. A true, caring Professional.

My daughter was arrested for Possession of Marijuana on a Thursday night. Friday I had a consultation with Mr. Paull and had so many worries since I have never been in this kind of situation. Throughout the consultation I grew more and more confident that he knew what needed to be done and my worries were gone by the time I left. On her FIRST court appearance, we were surprised to find out he got her case DISMISSED!! He has a great relationship with the prosecutors and court staff. This is the kind of attorney you want on your side

I was referred to Mr. Paull by another lawyer. As my Attorney he thoughrougly investigated the case and determined that there were problems with the breath test machine. I do not understand the science like joanthan but I am glad he does! The State's lawyer decided that they had to dismiss right before going to trial.

We hired Jonathan to handle my mom's DWI charge in May 2012 and while out on bond she received another DWI. My mother doubted him in the beginning thinking he wasn't paying any attenion to her cases, but as time got closer my mothers Faith for her lawyer grew stronger. Mr. Paull recently got BOTH cases DISMISSED and we couldn't be happier. It was the best Christmas present my family could have ever received. To: Jonathan from My Mother, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE HARD WORK YOU'VE DONE FOR ME, MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU TO CONTINUE TO BE THE BEST LAWYER THAT ANYONE COULD ASK FOR; HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

I was arrested back in June for a 1st offense DWI. I drove up on a median and the cops approached my vehicle, they had me perform field sobriety tests and took me in. Mr. Paull thought my case was worth taking to trial and ended up ended up getting a NOT GUILTY. I would highly recommend Mr. Paull for anyone in need of a great criminal attorney.

I needed my case reduced from a DWI. Jonathan had it reduced to Reckless Driving. We discussed that most importantly, I couldn't have a DWI. Jonathan did what he needed to do and helped me out. I'm greatly appreciative of his services and recommend him to anyone in the same boat as I was.

Mr. Paull represented me on a DWI case. He showed up late to court regularly, where I would have to call him to find out his ETA. He was extremely vague about discussing the details and strategy of my case and what appeared to put little effort into the case. He never returned phone calls and only meet face-to-face just before a court.
During trial where he looked like a clown in front of the judge and the D.A. walked over him like a door mat. I would never recommend this 2nd rate attorney.

Charged with assault and trespassing August 2011. There was an argument that was blown way out of proportion. The police were called out, I was later arrested for those charges. I was referred to Jonathan J. Paul. I am pleased with the hard work and dedication that he has put towards my case. I was able to keep my record clean and clear my good name.
Thanks Jonathan J. Paull!

Mr. Jonathan J. Paull is a Top-notch attorney. He was able to get my case settled sooner than I had anticipated. I was arrested for a DWI charge. It happened over Memorial weekend, which is also known for being a Non-Refusal weekend when it comes to taking a blood-alcohol-level test. I chose to take the breathalyzer and blew a .13 (this was my second DWI). The outcome of my case……DISMISSED !!
Thanks to Mr. Paull and his assistant Amanda for all of the effort they put into my case. I had no doubt of his abilities, once I saw his courtroom demeanor when handling my case. He and his staff were very helpful with any questions/suggestions that I had during the process.
If you are reading this because you are in need of legal representation.
This is the attorney you need in court.

I've hired J. Paull for two different cases. The first time I was pulled over for speeding, but unfortunately was taken in for DWI. Jonathan recommended me for the "DIVERT" program. Upon completion of the program, my case was dismissed. A couple of years later, I was pulled aside for a burnt out headlight, however, once again, I was taken in for DWI although I was not over the limit. Per his advise from the first case, I followed his instructions when pulled over. Because of his advice, he was eventually able to get my case completely dismissed. Furthermore, he won the ALR hearing as well. I hope to not be in this situtation again. If you are in this situation, call Jonathan, he'll do his best to resolve your case to your benifet.

Mr. Paull represented me on a DWI 3rd case in 2011. He showed up late to court regularly, to the extent that on one occassion the judge had me leave her courtroom to call him. He was elusive about discussing the details of my case and appeared to show little interest in the process or the outcome. He typically did not return phone calls and would only meet face-to-face with me just before a court hearing. He did not discuss the implications of an assessment that he advised me to consent to, which resulted in the judge adding six-months incarceration in a treatment facility to my probation terms. Upon my conviction, he vanished, not responding to my wife's attempts to contact him while I was incarcerated.
